I am reading a book called Berlin Noir by Philip Kerr. It is a collection of three detective stories. The first two are set in Berlin in 1936 and 1938, respectively. So far I like it. However, that is not the point of this post. The main character gets sent to Dachau in 1936. A very, very unappealing development for him. However, from the "glass is half full" archives he talks about another prisoner he met, saying:

I met a convict who was a Jew. He was also a homosexual. And if that weren't enough, he was also a Communist. That made three triangles. His luck hadn't so much run out as jumped on a fucking motorcycle.

Now that is bad luck.
